The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission



Washington Field Office Open to Public at New Location on Nov. 19

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Headquarters and Washington Field Office (WFO) are relocating to 131 M Street, NE, beginning Nov. 19. All phone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses will remain the same.

The lease for the EEOC Headquarters at 1801 L Street, NW, expired in July 2008. In May 2007, the General Services Administration announced the signing of a 10-year lease for office space at the EEOC’s new Headquarters location, also known as One NoMa Station. NoMa (North of Massachusetts Avenue) is an emerging mixed-use neighborhood north of the U.S. Capitol and Union Station. Further information about the NoMa area can be found online at

The WFO is responsible for processing charges of discrimination against private, state and local government employers in the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia, and for administering hearings regarding complaints against federal government employers in these geographic areas. One of 53 EEOC field offices nationwide, the WFO has shared space with Headquarters staff since August 2004. The new address for the WFO, effective Wednesday, Nov. 19, is:

EEOC Washington Field Office
131 M Street, NE
Fourth Floor, Suite 4NWO2F
Washington, DC 20507-0100

The public is welcome to contact the WFO in person. Walk-in hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with daily hours of operation from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The WFO is metro accessible via the “New York Ave-Florida Ave-Gallaudet U” station on the Red Line (M and Second Streets Exit).
